The Constitution and You: How the Constitution Has Affected Your Life
Video Contest

Sponsored by The West Virginia State Bar

Congratulations to our winners listed below! The contest, which was open to West Virginia students in grades 6 through 12, gave participants the chance to create a video about what role the Constitution plays in daily life. Judging was broken into high school and middle school levels. First place winners received $500 and second place finishers received $250. The creators of the first place videos also were invited to attend The West Virginia State Bar's Annual Meeting on April 17-18 at Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, West Virginia. Videos were judged based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality.

All winning videos can be seen by visiting the West Virginia Department of Education's YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/wveducation
